Workshop: There’s a Black Hole in My Child’s Backpack! How to Help Your Child be More Organized
Guest Speaker: Deanne Shields, Learning Disabilities Association or Utah.
Executive functioning skills allow a student to organize both their “outside world and inside world.” Students who struggle with this have difficulty organizing and processing information, keeping track of papers, making deadlines, analyzing tasks, and maintaining sustained focus. This workshop will offer parents practical ideas in how to help your child with ADD/ADHD or learning disabilities to manage and develop the executive functioning skills necessary to succeed in school.
